Game Review

Carlton won this Friday night match by 1 point, Ray Byrne was knocked out in a marking contest just before half time and carried from the ground not to return and Lou Richards from Channel 7 gave him their ‘best player on the ground’ award.

The final siren sounded with the ball in Geelong's goal square.
